Nine Shift is predicting that around 2016 telework will really boom. Here's why.
"The biggest barrier to telecommuting, by a wide margin, is management fear and mistrust." That according toTom Harnish & Kate Lister, The State of Telework in the U.S. How Individuals, Business, and Government Benefit, Telework Research Network, June 2011, p.4, http://www.workshifting.com/downloads/
That also according to just about everyone who wants to telework, but can't. Management attitudes will change around 2016 as Boomers retire between now and then and Gen X managers replace them.
